"As a sales manager, it's your job to guide your team to success by setting appropriate quotas and goals, building sales plans, establishing training programs, and and developing sales strategies. Employers are looking for candidates who are skilled negotiators, planners, and leaders. In an interview, come ready to discuss your management style and how you've closed sales in the past. Excelling in sales is all about delivering superb customer service, so be prepared to offer a sales pitch on the spot or answer a scenario question about handling tough customers."
How would you manage an independent contractor when he or she disagrees with the direction you are asking them to go?
I would listen to their argument and try and find common ground so that we could build a win/win situation that allowed us to move forward.
The company I currently work for has had employees and independent contractors. I would listen to their concerns then I would point out company policies and procedures to them even though they may be independent there are still rules. I have worked as an independent contractor in the past and each company had their own set of rules to be followed
